And the survey counts breeding ducks, and is done before ducks nest and produce ducklings. The wet spring likely didn’t hurt duck production, Cordts said, but good reproduction is critical to good hunting. About 50 percent of the birds killed by hunters are locally grown ducks.
August goose hunt
Meanwhile, the first-ever August Canada goose season runs Aug. 10-25 in a large swath of west-central Minnesota, with a daily bag limit of 10 and no possession limit. The goal is to reduce the state’s goose population. The question is whether hunters will go afield in the heat of August, and if so, how successful they will be.
Hunters will be allowed to hunt over water.
“Some people like it, some don’t,’’ Cordts said. “Our intent is to harvest a lot of geese in that zone.’’ He doesn’t believe the disturbance a month before the duck opener will push ducks from the state.
Shooting hours will be from a half-hour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset. A small game hunting license, $4 early goose permit and state waterfowl stamp are required (a federal waterfowl stamp isn’t needed). For details, see startribune.com/a2367.
